Abstract This paper examines the methods being devised at Victoria University to
provide an intelligent, knowledge based interface to expert systems, simulation
packages and CAD systems for architectural design. Currently a large amount of
information is duplicated in describing a building to different design tools. To enable
designers to use different design tools to evaluate a building design, without having to
duplicate so much of their effort, we propose a system that uses a common building
model to represent their knowledge of a building. On top of this building model we
provide an interfacing mechanism to move information between the different design
tools and the common building model.
